Webinar: First Nations collection description guidelines for the library sector

This webinar marks the official launch of ‘Guidelines for First Nations Collection Description’ for the Australian library sector.

Written by Tui Raven, the guidelines have been produced as a collaboration between five organisations: the Australian Library & Information Association (ALIA), National and State Libraries Australasia (NSLA), the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) and CAVAL.

In this session, Tui Raven provides an overview of the guidelines document and the process of bringing it together, before joining a panel discussion with Damien Webb (State Library of New South Wales, NSLA, ALIA, IFLA), Michela Goodwin (National Library of Australia) and Anthony McLaughlin (AIATSIS), facilitated by project co-lead Kathleen Smeaton (CAUL).

The webinar was introduced by the Director-General of the National Library of Australia, Dr Marie-Louise Ayres.
